On Wednesday, August 22 we held a Farewell Party for Andrea Walus with over 25 faculty and staff attending. Great appreciation was expressed by everyone at the party and on our blog, including many learners who will also miss Andrea’s exceptional support in navigating the UBC systems and completing the many tasks needed for successful online learning.
In recognition for her 7 years of service in the various rehabilitation science programs, including the management of the organizational transition to the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (OS&OT), everyone contributed to a gift card for the Gourmet Warehouse. Andrea was thrilled and plans to stock up on all the various spices and gadgets she’ll need for the two French cooking courses she is taking this Fall. We’re all waiting for the dinner invitations later this year!
As of August 24, Andrea is on her way to a new position as Development Coordinator with the Faculty of Applied Sciences effective September 4. Our Administrative Manager position is posted and Andrea will help to orient the new person, as soon in September as possible. In the meantime, please continue to email firstname.lastname@example.org and either one of the program directors or a staff person from the Department of OS&OT will help you.
